Theo With RCAF 418 Squadron

I only have a few pages of Theo’s logbook and a few documents to work with.

This one is most interesting.

At first we would think Theo flew a Mosquito on his first operation.

Theo was with RCAF 418 Squadron at Ford from March 23rd to July 31, 1943.  This is a page from his logbook showing what Theo did on March 26.

    • Exactly. He has become a family member and Rich is telling him what goes on with the blog.
      This is my reward just like Koji with his two veterans and Chatter Box with her veteran.
      This is worth millions!

  1. I have a couple of photographs my late aunt had of a party at RAF Ford with the 418 Squadron on the 31st October 1943 also newspaper cuttings and photos of some of the pilots of that squadron. I’d be very happy to forward the scanned images if they are of interest to you.
